BSS: Merry Wives of Windsor (11-16 June 2024)

It’s summer 2024. Falstaff arrives at the Garter Hotel in Windsor with his semi-criminal ‘retinue’, looking to scam some easy money by romancing two wealthy wives there with his fading charms, Mrs Ford and Mrs Page. His overtures to the former excite the jealousy of Mr. Ford, leading to comically furious scenes.

Meanwhile the hotel’s host enjoys setting up practical jokes between two other guests, the Reverend Sir Hugh and Doctor Caius. A further guest, the ancient retired Justice Shallow, is there to find a suitable wife for his cellar-dwelling video gamer nephew, Slender.The Pages are on the same quest for their daughter Anne. Her father favours Slender; Mrs Page, Doctor Caius. But anyone is better than Anne’s current squeeze, louche aristo ‘bad boy’ Fenton.

Will the scatterbrained Ms. Quickly – personal message deliverer to all of them – manage to get the right messages to the right people? Who will marry Anne? Who will come out top practical joker? Will Falstaff’s scheming succeed? Come and enjoy Shakespeare’s light frothy farce – and the worst joke he ever wrote!
